Discover Rio de Janeiro from 2 perspectives with a cruise on the Guanabara Bay and a trek up Corcovado Mountain to the Christ the Redeemer statue. Between each of these unique views, grab lunch at a local restaurant and visit the incredible Selaron Steps in Santa Teresa.

Transfer from your hotel to the Marina da Gloria pier, where you board a boat and set off into the Guanabara Bay. As your vessel curves around the coast, passing under the Rio-Niteroi Bridge, catch sight of the historic fortifications built to protect the city: the São João, Lajes, and Santa Cruz forts. Circle around the bay, pass the city of Niteroi, and relish panoramic views of Rio de Janeiro from the water.

Back on shore, climb into a vehicle and drive by the beautiful Flamengo Park and Sugarloaf Mountain on your way into town. Make a stop for lunch at a churrascaria steakhouse, where you get your fill of traditional Brazilian barbecue. Later, stop by the Santa Teresa district to see the vibrant Selaron Steps, a 215-step work of art covered in more than 2,000 brilliant tiles.

Continue on to the Corcovado Mountain through a van ride, taking a rugged mountain road up the slopes. At the summit stands the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue, a symbol of Rio de Janeiro and a New Wonder of the World. Marvel at the 125-foot (38-metre) sculpture before gazing out at the view from the mountain peak, which stretches from the coast to the mountains and the city. After soaking in the sight, get transported back to your hotel.
